NEW! A course for those who want to learn to roller ski, on 11-12 June 2024.

The course is held by Micke Åström, certified ski coach through the Swedish Ski Association.

This is how he describes himself and the course:

I am mainly active in Torsby/Värmland, and then I give lessons at Torsby's ski tunnel and sports centre, Mattila and also Långberget. My target group is the first-time skier and up to the more experienced skier. My business extends all year round and this means that I stay updated and develop continuously.

A perfect place for roller skiing

Now I've found out about Hellasgården with your fantastic facility that offers perfect opportunities for roller skiing. A place where many Vasalopp skiers have trained for their main goals. Since I will be there over two days, there are good opportunities for group lessons in both classic and skate/free style. There will also be times for private lessons, which means that you as a skier can come alone or bring friends, family etc.

Beginners' group for roller skis

Beginner group: For those who want to become friends with rollerblades. I will place great emphasis on balance, bridging techniques, turning safely. Will also go over the basics of diagonal, staking, staking - with push offs and downhill strategies. I place great emphasis on safety, security and equipment.

Continuation group for roller skis

Advanced group: If you've skied before, but feel like you're in the dark when it comes to your technique, this is the group for you. I will go through diagonal, stacking, stacking with push-offs and downhill skiing in a more in-depth way. Functional strength exercises will also be integrated into the workout that you can benefit from when running your workouts. The aim is for you as a skier to gain a more in-depth insight into how to become your own coach and gain a greater understanding of how to improve your skiing economy. Balance, weight transfer are also parts that I will work with in order to become a generally better skier.

Freestyle/skating for roller skis

Freestyle/Skating: Balance, weight transfer and timing are three basic keys that you as a skater will train if you sign up for this group. The two, three and four gears will take centre stage and you will gain a deeper understanding of what makes these gears different. The common thread that will run through this lesson is that you will be given keys that will help you to get a better ride economy.
